Reception of New Rays

"I love X-rays and I love the combining of X-ray and person and the person who seems so Victorian but then you see the tattoos. And then it's put into something that feels almost like a bone that you've dug up in an archive. This just has so much materiality and visceral feeling and is such a unique way to share this diptych of images." — Aline Smithson, artist and founder of Lenscratch, during "SFW Creativity Continues – Assignment: Altered Images with Aline Smithson"

Reception of Diversion

"What a tremendously beautiful, poetic and impactful collection of art you've created! Thank you so much for sharing it with CPL patrons (and staff); Diversion is a deeply moving exhibit. I am so impressed by your ability to create something utterly beautiful out of such a tragic loss. Grief is a terribly unwieldy experience, but you've proven how to find resilience in a powerful way." — Robin Willard

"Your work stops me every time I pass through the space. By itself, without knowing anything about your story, I found it deeply engaging from the moment the first piece went up. I love the textures, the abstraction, the colors, the evidence of a story, but I really can’t find words for that inner jolt I feel when I witness such powerful work. Being aware of the tragedy to which this art is a response just deepens what is obviously there." — C. D. Peterson
